About this project
AUDITIONis a feature film that follows a New York City couple through a short-lived romance that suddenly turns into a dating nightmare. The couple is portrayed by one hundred actors who audition for the two roles and the chance to become the film’s stars.
AUDITION is a narrative film and reality acting competition combined. Each actor plays one of its two characters, MAN or WOMAN, in a raw and realistic fashion. Over the course of the script, all but two actors are gradually eliminated based on their performances. These two actors are awarded the “lead roles,” and only they will complete the final, terrifying scene. In the final edit, each scene is finalized as a combination of multiple actors’ performances, with the location, sound design and story remaining consistent. Documentary moments from behind-the-scenes footage are edited within the narrative and account for approximately one third of the film. In the end, the characters’ search for love parallels the actors’ struggle for success.
The script is shot chronologically over the course of one week in a large loft divided into two separate areas: the Set and the Waiting Area. The Set, designed as “Man’s Loft Apartment,” serves as the center of the film’s story and main stage for film production. In the Waiting Area, the actors interact with each other before and after their on-screen performances.
Prior to shooting, the actors spend time rehearsing the script with their initial partner. The actors are judged as individuals; therefore the couples change as the film progresses. The actors cast are a diverse group of talented, emerging actors, ranging in age from approximately 18 to 39.
AUDITION will be entirely shot and edited in New York City.
